A bit late to the sock party, and embarrassingly slow to move on from shamefully hiding socks deep down in your shoe to flaunting them proudly over your trainers. Always happy to embrace a trend that is comfortable though, and there is something about seeing a flash of glitter – where you’d usually expect something more mundane – that makes me smile. Glittery socks, over tights, teamed with brogues and denim shorts, puts a happy spin on mum uniform. They don’t last though, all my delicate pairs have quickly succumbed to holes and, sadly, the bin. These are from & Other Stories – buy here – but if anyone knows of hardier pairs that won’t object to actually being worn, please let me know.
